Kids Matter

Why emotioal intelligence matters

by Michael Grose


Emotional intelligence benefits kids in so many ways, yet we’ve been slow to develop it in children and young people. Most parents intuitively know that emotional smarts is beneficial but they are unsure how to introduce it into their parenting. 

As a parent your emotions as well as your child’s emotions give you information that directs your parenting behaviour. Emotionally intelligent parenting means we consciously take in the emotional cues that children provide, as well as the cognitive and behaviour cues.
